    from a recent candlelight vigil devoted to issues of diversity and the "Creed" of Ole Miss:

    As a voluntary member of this community: I believe in respect for the dignity of each person I believe in fairness and civility I believe in personal and professional integrity I believe in academic honesty I believe in academic freedom I believe in good stewardship of our resources I pledge to uphold these values and encourage others to follow my example.
    As a secular humanist from an ungodly northern college, I have to say there's something that creeps me out a bit about the citation of a campuswide "creed."

    But beyond that, the other thing I notice is that you have to click on the FP link and then dig down a bit to see that this protest is related to the ugly racist backlash on campus the night of the election.

    If you didn't know any better, you might stumble on their website thinking, "wow! this is the sort of tolerant school where people burst into candlelight vigils at the drop of a hat."

    Nothing requires a greater effort of thought than arguments to justify the rule of non-thought. -- Milan Kundera
